Satellite Internet

I am going to do it. Next Thursday, payday, I am going to order Satellite Internet service. It's the only high speed Internet available in my area. I have put it off because of the expense, I didn't want to take the money from savings so I have been slowly saving up for it. The monthly cost will only be around $25 a month more but the initial cost will be around $300. I am a part time nurse so must save for anything that expensive and I am not a charging kind of person. Well, just a little.
The phone company is promising DSL to 90% of Vermont by 2010. I can't wait that long, I am going insane with this slow dial-up. Loading, loading,loading,loading........2hours later.....loading...You get my drift. And I am sure I will be in the 10% of Vermonters who never have it available!
I would like to know if any of you have Satellite Internet or know of anyone who has it and what you/they think of it.
Thanks

We have DSL, even in our rural area. It's because we live beside a school...they paid to have it run out this far and the neighbors benefited. 3 houses down (4 miles) they don't have the option.

I have friends who recently made the switch from dial-up to satellite internet (DirecTV, I think) and they couldn't be happier. They had resisted a long time because of the cost, but now assure me it was well worth it. I've used their service, and while I don't feel it's as fast as my DSL hookup, it was pretty speedy and they say it's VERY reliable.

Good luck!

Anything has to be better than dialup.

If we have satellite internet here, I haven't seen it. I have Comcast (cable) which is probably close to the same thing. It's expensive but it's almost my only treat to myself.

I've been thinking about switching to Clearwire though. My son has it and likes it.

I can't comment on this issue except to say the first thing on my husband's checklist for our future country home is either satellite internet or proximity to a major wireless hub...functional well and septic tank are, apparently, not that high on the list.

Oh, and here's something I can comment on: the hair photo series. Some of the funniest stuff I've seen in a LOOOONG WHILE. The President of the United States agrees.

Jump in ... do it... you'll forget about the money and wonder how you ever lived with out it...

I think about all these things I waited so long to do an now I can't live without: power windows in the car... atm's... cable tv and then the DVR...garbage disposal...

I almost never comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Satellite Internet".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Is it simply me or does it look like a few of these remarks come across as if
they are coming from brain dead individuals? :
-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

I think everything composed made a great deal of sense.

But, think on this, what if you added a little content?
I am not saying your information is not solid., however what if
you added a post title that makes people desire more?
I mean "Satellite Internet" is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news titles to grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more
interesting.
